The provincial government continues to seek public input to inform Budget 2022 through public engagement sessions, adjusting the previous format to offer virtual public meetings and telephone town halls, in addition to online opportunities for feedback, to protect participants and remain in accordance with current public health orders.

The Manitoba government wants to hear what matters most to Manitobans and their families, so they can chart a course to address those priority areas. To accommodate as many residents as possible, Manitobans are invited to share their views via their choice of virtual or telephone engagement sessions, or through the online survey.

Virtual public meetings will be held:

  • Mon., January 17 at 6:30 p.m. for rural Manitobans;
  • Thurs., January 20 at 6:30 p.m. for Winnipeg residents (English-French bilingual); and
  • Wed., January 26 at 6:30 p.m. for Northern Manitobans.

A telephone town hall will take place on Monday, January 24 at 6 pm for Winnipeg residents.
Manitobans are asked to register for the virtual public meetings in advance; or sign up at to receive a phone call to participate in a telephone town hall.

There are many ways to participate and the online survey is available at until January 31.

Manitobans can also email comments and ideas to [email protected] or mail written submissions to:
